The Quantitative Ecologist analyzes data collected by The Peregrine Fund or stored by the Global Raptor Impact Network. They work closely with project directors and The Executive Vice President of Science and Conservation to design analyses, studies, and monitoring programs that ensure hypotheses are rigorously tested, population trends are detected, and potential management actions are identified and evaluated.


Critically evaluate—and provide guidance to program managers regarding the design of studies, monitoring programs, and experiments, especially regarding data collection and the strength of inference that will be gained concerning the hypotheses to be tested.

Analyze empirical data to determine vital rates such as survival and fecundity for focal species.

Develop and use simulation models of populations of focal species to prioritize research questions and guide management decisions.

Analyze data regarding population levels across both space and time to detect trends and examine their underlying drivers.

Develop novel methods for combining inference from disparate datasets.

Contribute to peer-reviewed publications, reports, presentations, and grant-writing in support of projects.


Ph.D. in biology, biostatistics, wildlife biology, or field related to conservation or statistics.

Proficiency in R, especially regarding data simulation, mark-recapture, occupancy modeling, N-mixture models, GLM, GLMM, and MaxEnt.

Familiarity building, managing, and analyzing large databases.

Excellent oral and written communication skills.

Comfortable working both independently and on a team.

Ability and desire to learn and develop new quantitative techniques.

Experience designing monitoring programs for vertebrates.

Expertise in population ecology, specifically the regulation or distribution of bird populations.


At least five years of experience designing and implementing studies on the regulation or distribution of animal populations.

Proficient using Bayesian hierarchical models, particularly integrated population models.

Experience with large databases of bird sightings such as eBird, GBIF, and the Avian Knowledge Network

Familiarity with the biology, conservation, and monitoring of raptors.

Strong record of scientific publication.

Experience with GIS.


The Quantitative Ecologist is not expected to collect data but does a limited amount of fieldwork involving site visits during study design and implementation.


Annual salary $70,000 - $80,000
